SCENT OF A WEED SMOKER
Ubiquitous is the existence of marijuana. Let’s face it, with increasingly relaxed cannabis regulations, as well as the clinically proven advantages of marijuana for illness and injury, these days it’s difficult to find a place, public or otherwise, where there is no smell of pot.
You smell it in parking garages, stairwells, public bathrooms, and especially on the street.
In fact, one of the many places weed is detected in large metropolises is inside a person’s car.
Depending upon the strand, weed has many smells and tastes. One overriding aroma, though, that weed has, is a pungency that can get into everything from your hair and clothes, to your carpet, draperies and bedsheets.
If you smoke while driving, weed has your car covered, too. Literally!
Like any smell that is confined to a small interior space such as a car (think coffee, burgers, fries, fried chicken, etc.), weed has the same deep-rooted olfactory sensation.
It’s sharp and thick. Or when the smell is a few days old, stale and distant.
At any rate, after a good-sized bowl, your car can smell like a skunk took it out on a test drive through the canyons. In short, the inside of your whip wreaks!
Now, whether it’s in anticipation of a date, you’re about to pick your folks up from the airport, or you just quit smoking and in that, want no trace of a marijuana trigger anywhere near you, your vehicle also needs to detox from weed – or at least the smell of weed.
HOW TO GET THE WEED SMELL OUT OF MY CAR?
The reasons for a person to get rid of the weed smell in their car can be many – all of them pointing to why a person shouldn’t smoke weed while driving in the first place.
Granted, it’s dangerous, and not conducive to your driving privileges nor your economic well-being should you get a DUI, into an auto accident or worse.
Of course, there are others who simply want to quit weed altogether, yet find the lingering marijuana smell distracting, even annoying.
With that, here are some suggestions to help you get the smell of weed out of your car and away from the bumper-to-bumper grind that you have now wisely decided will be pot free.
CAN AIR FRESHENERS GET THE WEED SMELL OUT OF MY CAR?
Air fresheners are supposed to work very well toward getting the weed smell out of one’s car. As you know, air fresheners have a heavy, almost sugary scent. Air fresheners also take very little time to be effective.
Once air fresheners do become effective, they literally take over a car’s interior, particularly when the windows are rolled up.
A wide array of air fresheners can be found in car washes and auto parts stores. They come in solid form, which you hang from convenient places such as your rear-view mirror, or spray form that can be sprayed throughout your car’s interior.
Pick out your favorite scent, and begin the olfactory detoxing of your sled’s interior. For faster results, hang your solid air freshener in front of one of your dash vents, and turn on the air conditioning.
If your air freshener is in a spray form, spray a bit into one of the dash vents, then turn on the air conditioning afterward.
CAN HOUSEHOLD CLEANING PRODUCTS GET THE WEED SMELL OUT OF MY CAR?
Household fresheners such as Febreze and Ozium are effective products that work in the car as well as the house.
Marijuana smokers praise Ozium for its long-lasting strength when only a small amount is sprayed from its can.
Ozium, however, is a bit more difficult to find. Febreze, on the other hand, can be found virtually everywhere from the grocery store to the auto parts store.
Ozium has four main scents: those are original, fresh citrus, country fresh and vanilla. Febreze has many other scents to choose from.
CAN COLOGNE OR A WIFE’S/GIRLFRIEND’S PERFUME GET THE WEED SMELL OUT OF MY CAR?
Yes, either your cologne or your wife’s/girlfriend’s perfume can work wonderfully toward getting the smell of weed out of your car.
You apply both the same way you do with a liquid air freshener, by pouring some into a dash vent, then turning on the air conditioning.
Just be aware that some cologne and perfume have very strong concentrations, which can literally overwhelm a car’s interior as well as the driver and passengers.
CAN INCENSE GET THE WEED SMELL OUT OF MY CAR?
Incense, for sure, can get the weed smell out of your car. But do you honestly want something more burning and smoking beyond the days of your in-traffic bowl and joint smoking?
Plus, incense ash is thick and heavy. Should it blow about, it could easily get into your eyes, causing your vision to become impaired.
HOW ABOUT ROLLING DOWN THE WINDOWS? WILL THAT HELP WITH THE WEED SMELL?
Rolling down the windows of your hot-boxed baby and going for a nice long drive will probably be the most effective and least suspicious ways to detox your interior from weed smell.
Regular old air leaves an after scent of regular old air, and not something questionable like Old Spice cologne, Brute or the heavy perfume smell of White Diamonds.
Heavy household Febreze and Ozium fragrances might garner the same questions of, “What else have you been doing in here besides driving?”
Even as the debate continues about marijuana and its dangers vs. its benefits, there are certain mind and body-elements to the drug that people simply choose not to endure. This leads to quitting pot, which for some is a person’s best option.
Of course, quitting pot can also keep your mind free from worry and/or agitation regarding the smell of your car’s interior.
Bring on the coffee, burger, fries and fried chicken. There are better, safer and less illegal scents you can have in your car than weed.
